It’s not just lean startups that need to make snap decisions, iterate quickly and adapt... companies in crisis, businesses looking to excel and basic product improvement can all benefit from Lean UX.

So how do you start?

This is not a definitive guide but a quick start to help you fail fast and iterate quickly. I will show you how to “Write the test first” and set out your hypothesis to align check it with your brand. From there I will show you how to wireframe your logic and build it rough and ready. We then consider how to evaluate your hypothesis, what tools you can use and if it works we refine our idea and move it forward. Finally, I outline the importance of never being afraid to scrap anything which doesn’t work.
